day in inner city neighborhoods, a child gets shot. and it doesn't make the news. that's in every one of those neighborhoods. we never talk about it. i think this is bringing it to our attention because it's neighborhoods like we live in, right? and that bothers me that suddenly society becomes gripped when you have a much bigger ongoing tragedy. i think that says something about our mentality. and you know, i actually think that's why we have a constitution. because, it's when you have tragedies, and when emotion is running high, that you actually need a break to step back from the emotion and think about what's going on. >> wait a second. some of the things that have been proposed have been simply bringing back a ban on assault rifles that was brought here in 1994. >> which the justice department studied and found it was ineffective. you know, sure if we want to do it, that's fine. it passed the constitutional test. but, i don't think that is going to solve our problem. >> it may not solve the problem. it may not have stopped this situation. but it would certainly have some impact.
